Published 2:00 pm Thursday, February 2, 2023

The Oxford girls’ basketball team picked up a much-needed win on Wednesday as they defeated Coffeeville 45-30 on senior night.

The Lady Chargers (12-15, 1-5 Region 1-6A) enjoyed double-digit performances from Olivia Waddell and Kaylin Mathis as the two seniors poured in 13 and 10 points, respectively in what could ultimately prove to be the final home game of their high school careers.

The strong effort from the two upperclassmen was more than enough to down the Pirates, who were held to single-digits in the second and fourth quarters as Oxford locked down defensively.
